Many thanks to all who donated to the project. Sandy Hook has been overwhelmed with snowflakes from everywhere! We have mailed out what was already donated and won't be collecting any more.
To quote a recent Newtown Patch article:
"Connecticut PTSA is deeply saddened by the tragedy that has struck our Newtown community. We have met with the PTA and community leaders in Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary to offer our assistance at this very difficult time. They have asked us to spearhead the following efforts on their behalf......Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. Please help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school! Get creative!" This is just one project on the list.
We ask that anyone who would like to make paper snowflakes for the children of that community bring them into the Children's Library and add them to our collection basket. We will be mailing them January 8th. Hopefully these creations will bring some comfort to the school community by demonstrating that we in the New City Library neighborhood are thinking of them with compassion and support.
